    It seems like that is the same issue people had when LOTW came along. It's faster and easier to accumulate awards when it just takes a few mouse clicks. My original DXCC award was achieved using paper cards. That's the only one that hangs in my shack, although I've earned others through LOTW. It's like Dave said, it's what is means to you. It's just a piece of paper. But I agree that the digital awards were cheapened further by FT-8. There, I said it. Let the flaming begin. ;)

    I wonder if there are any people / groups that actually put the old mechanical RTTY machines on the air? One of our club members (SK) had a whole basement full of these. He fired one up for me, it was neat to see! Luckily the machines were all saved/preserved.. he was part of a group called "GreenKeys" and those folks bought most/all of the RTTY stuff after he passed away.
